Kangaroo Island Open for Business

Sailaway John

Recommended Posts

For the info of all those that are wondering about Kangaroo Island and if it would be open to cruise ship after their recent fires . . . . the answer is YES.


Her is an article that I copied from Facebook today, Sunday 19th January, 2020.


Weeks after bushfires tore through most of Kangaroo Island a cruise ship has arrived with thousands of tourists keen to support the local community. Guests came ashore and took part in tours by local operators while others visited market stalls established by locals. Many made donations to bushfire appeal efforts. The SA Premier, Steven Marshall said “It is our hope that this visit by Sun Princess and her guests will serve to boost morale and send a message to the community that their lives are getting back to normal.”

There are tourism ads on TV now asking people to visit, and this is on their website. I hope to make a weekend visit soon.



Now more than ever, our beautiful Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island regions need your support. Tourism is vital for these regional economies to rebuild after the Cudlee Creek and Kangaroo Island bushfires. So together let’s #BookThemOut. Round up some friends and plan a trip to their backyard. Tour with a local guide, meet the wildlife, buy the local produce, spirits and wine and stay a few nights. So much of the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island look exactly as you'd expect, pristine, pure and perfect.
